sunday already? meh!

i've gotten a lot of sleep done this weekend, so that's good. between that and watching lots of first season dead like me, i suppose i've had exactly the kind of lazy weekend i needed. gotta remember to prep some stuff for work tomorrow, but i can do that later.

dad goes in for surgery tomorrow. he's had a lot of problems walking the past year so after a lot of pushing on my behalf, he finally went to see a doctor. my dad isn't the most communicative person (and even though he's lived in sweden since 1960, or so, he struggles with the language when discussing more complex things, like this surgery) so i'm not entirely sure what they're doing. i think it's some sort of bypass for his legs? his legs aren't getting enough bloodflow/oxygene which is causing the pains he get when trying to walk.

he's very nervous, but he's bringing a friend. he's unclear on the details but says they won't need to put him under so he'll be awake for the whole thing. that makes me feel better, actually - he has a very bad heart and from watching lots of med-tv (duh), it seems safer whenever they do these things where the patient is awake. anyway. i'm sure i'll be nervous regardless, but i'm very glad to know he might finally be able to walk properly again.

oh, look at that. it's raining. how fitting. i'm going to make some more tea and listen to 90s chick-music (paula cole! hehe! i never got the this fire album back then so i just downloaded it now and am catching up. it's pretty good! i did skip on the dawson's creek song, though, hehe) and dwell a bit on silly emo-things.

you know. because it's just that kind of sunday. cin cin!

i hope your dad's operation goes well. i can imagine it being kind of scary, especially when the language of the surgeons isn't his native language.

i love that Paula Cole album. i think she got kind of boring after that one though...

thanks for reminding me to add Dead Like Me to our rentals list!

thank you (belatedly) for the wellwish - he's going in for the real surgery wednesday, and apparently they will be putting him under for it, so it's causing a bit of stress but i've got high hopes that all will be fine.

that paula cole album IS really good, but yeah - she got really boring. in fact, a bunch of women who put out really interesting albums in the mid-90s really fizzled after that. heather nova fizzled after Oyster (imo), joan osbone after relish, alanis was okay on her followup but still fizzled mightily, liz phair, sarah maclachlan... etc.

i'm surprised at how much of my favourite music remains from the mid-90s. i guess it's true when they say we tend to get stuck to what we listened to in our teens and early twenties. i just miss female artists making somewhat of a mainstream impact who put out albums where they do crazy stuff with percussion and vocals..

i looove dead like me. :)
